How to make Korean Sticky Chicken
Step 1: Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add half of the chicken to the skillet, spreading them out in a single layer. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken until browned. Flip and continue to cook the other side. To a plate, transfer the chicken. Cook the rest of the chicken. If needed, add more oil to the pan.
Step 2: In the meantime, place the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well until blended.
Step 3: In the same skillet, add all the cooked chicken and pour the sauce over. Toss well to evenly coat the chicken. Let the sauce simmer for about 2 to 4 minutes or until thickened.
Step 4: To a serving plate or bowl, transfer the Korean Sticky Chicken. Serve garnished with some sesame seeds and chopped scallions. Enjoy!
